Our History

Restoration House Ministries (RHM) launched in 1996 to carry out the mission of developing partnerships for healthy church growth and new church planting in New England. That same year the RHM ministry center was constructed in Manchester, NH, to serve administrative and hospitality needs of the ministry. RHM is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. It functions under a Board of Directors composed of church leaders from across the U.S. and provides a financial audit report each year.

While developing an effective church planting program, RHM also established internship and resident ministry programs for churches in the region. Since 2000, new churches planted throughout New England have reached thousands of people. Churches have been started among those with historical roots in New England and those that have recently immigrated, including the Chinese, Korean, Cambodian, and African people groups. Beyond the shores of the U.S., RHM is partnering to plant churches in China. As God leads and provides, plans are forming for additional plants throughout the six-state region.

As of October 1, 2017, Eric Lee was called to take over as Executive Director of Restoration House Ministries.  Eric comes to RHM with the kind of commitment and experience we need.  Eric has a plan and the experience to lead RHM into a complex future while respecting its heritage. He has served cutting edge ministries as an Executive Minister in Indiana, Texas, and for the last seven years at Manchester Christian Church in Manchester, New Hampshire.  Prior to his work with MCC, he traveled to New England for several RHM church plant work trips, and he has since been involved with several partnership teams and training for the new church plants. He also served as a member of the RHM Board of Directors.

We are excited about the future of Restoration House Ministries; it has a great legacy upon which we will build for a bright future. Please pray for RHM and Eric as this transition moves forward and as we work together to “change the spiritual landscape of New England”.

We can't talk about RHM's history without mentioning it's founder and former Executive Director, Dan Clymer who served in that position from 1996 until 2017.   Dan and Linda have entered retirement and we recognize and appreciate the 20 plus years of service and sacrifice they have given to RHM.  What began as a dream in Dan’s mind is now a vibrant, thriving mission organization changing the spiritual landscape of New England.
